Guanajuato 2: music, belief and happiness

Guanajuato has been described as Mexico's dream city in a youtube video. Showing it to friends before coming here I began to apologise, it seemed a hyped promotion. But no, that video is accurate.

Guanajuato has youthful energy as well as ancient tradition.

This film assembles several clips on the evening of 4 June 2015.  

The music, the religious march, the young people happy in the night. 

Three things to say about them:

[1] normal stuff

[2] Religious parade

[3] end of university year. From 8am to late in the evening the photocopying shops are crowded with students having printing done ... and at 10pm happy singing and dancing, someone pays the mariachis and off they go.
